“After Brian lost his sight,” the caption reads, “The McKeever brothers won 10 Paralympic medals. Together.” While the ad manages to give a decent glimpse into the pro athletes’ origin story, there’s a lot more to it than what we see in Toyota’s touching Super Bowl spot.

Like USA today reports that when Brian McKeever was diagnosed at 19, he and his older brother, Robin McKeever, had promising Olympic careers. Although McKeever revealed to the outlet that his ‘gut reaction’ was to assume his skiing career would be over before it even started, he quickly discovered he had underestimated his own adaptability. . He began to focus on a Paralympic career and, despite his own successes, received advice early on that would change his approach to the sport – and that of his brother. The outlet explains how, at one point, a team of Germans who defeated McKeever suggested he team up with a guide. After Robin’s Olympic career hit a snag when he failed to qualify for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, he took on the role of guiding his younger brother.

Although the couple had to deal with the various trials and tribulations that come with working so closely with a sibling, they remain a team to this day. Like yahoo reports, Brian hopes his journey “inspires viewers to begin their impossible” and says he “learned firsthand that anything is possible with persistence and the support of a brother.”
